Ryan Clark Announced Return On Sean Taylor’s Birthday

The timing of Ryan Clark’s signing had to be kismet.

The veteran safety reportedly met with the Washington Redskins in March but could not agree on a deal at the time. After weeks of negotiations, Clark announced he rejoined the Redskins on what would have been Sean Taylor’s 31st birthday. The team made the deal official Wednesday morning.

Clark and Taylor safeties forged a close friendship from 2004-05, when they made up half of Washington’s secondary before Clark went to Pittsburgh.

The Redskins Ultimate Pro Bowler Frankenstein Sketch

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 24, 2014 – 4:11 pm

Frankwide

Over the course of a week, we asked you  to stop your typical Facebook piddling and play Dr. Frankenstein (it’s pronounced Franken-steen) to create the ultimate Redskins Pro Bowler.

Your picks are in. Here’s the superhuman you created accompanied by some of the worst blogger-created art you will ever see.

 

PART 1: STRENGTH AND PERSERVERANCE (TORSO)

You chose John Riggins‘ toughness over Sonny Jurgensen’s arm strength, Joe Jacoby’s upper body strength and Russ Grimm’s grit. Riggins went to the 1975 Pro Bowl. Read more »

UPDATE: Sean Taylor Made The Best Moment In Pro Bowl History

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 23, 2014 – 1:30 pm

 

Ten days ago I posted a blog requesting your votes for the greatest moment in Pro Bowl History. You came through.

With 58 percent of the votes, Sean Taylor’s demolition of Bills punter Brian Moorman overwhelmingly earned the majority of fan recognition. The two closest selections were Brandon Marshall’s four touchdowns from the 2012 all-star game (15 percent) Adrian Peterson taking home Pro Bowl MVP honors in the 2008 game (12 percent).

 

Taylor Wins

 

Read the original post below for more on Moorman’s reaction to the vicious hit and a recap of the year in punter violence.

Sean Taylor Inspires Kam Chancellor On Seahawks Super Bowl XLVIII Run

He could play the ball in the air with the best, but Sean Taylor made a career out of dropping the boom.

In the NFC Championship Sunday night in Seattle, Seahawks safety and Norfolk, Va., native Kam Chancellor did his best Taylor impression. The safety made 11 tackles, put a hurting on Vernon Davis and intercepted Colin Kaepernick to help send Seattle to Super Bowl XLVIII.

Earlier in the week, Chancellor told the Seattle Times he watches Taylor highlights before every game.

Chick Hernandez And The Greatest Afros In Redskins History

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 16, 2014 – 4:04 pm

Chick

I have no doubts CSN Washington anchor Chick Hernandez rises in the morning and likes what he sees in the mirror.

Chick is confident man in a profession of confident men. If he didn’t like what he saw, he probably wouldn’t put it on camera. But maybe some mornings he looks at his closely cropped hair and remembers what was with a pang of nostalgia.

There was a time, a golden age for anchormen, when Chick’s head sprouted hair so abundant it would make Pam Grier weep.  Read more »

(AP)

In an effort to promote the unconferenced 2014 NFL Pro Bowl, the NFL has released an online ballot for fans to vote on the best moment in Pro Bowl history.

As of Monday afternoon, the late Sean Taylor was leading the poll, garnering 33 percent of the votes for laying out Buffalo punter Brian Moorman on a fake punt in 2007.

Remembering The Greatness Of No. 21

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 31, 2013 – 10:49 am

With another week of OTAs in the book the Washington Redskins are one step closer to kicking off their 81st campaign with all sights set on a fourth Lombardi Trophy in our Nation’s Capital.

The 2013 Thursday night kickoff between the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos is just 97 days away and Grantland has been amping up NFL fans across the globe with highlight packages of some of the greatest to ever step on the gridiron.

Redskins legend Sean Taylor is one of them.

Remembering Sean Taylor On 30th B-Day

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 1, 2013 – 4:16 pm

Sean Taylor, George Foster

Sean Taylor was one of the fastest rising stars in the NFL during his four-year career with the Burgundy and Gold, as the safety garnished a reputation as being one the hardest hitting safeties in the league.

His 2007 season may have been the best year for Taylor, before his life was tragically cut short. The former University of Miami Hurricane had five interceptions in just nine games, four of which came during Weeks 5 through 7.

To this day it is still hard to swallow the loss of No. 21 on and off the field. Teammates like Santana Moss and Clinton Portis were some of Taylor’s closest friends. To this day, Moss continues to honor Taylor with each touchdown catch he makes.

Today would have been Taylor’s 30th birthday and while we wish that Taylor was still gracing the confines of FedExField and teaming with record-setting quarterback Robert Griffin III and running back Alfred Morris, we want to look back on the time that Taylor was in the DMV. Read more »

Redskins Historian: Sean Taylor’s Passing

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 29, 2012 – 8:59 am

By Mike Richman
The Redskins Historian

(Click here for more about the passing of Sean Taylor)

On Nov. 27, 2007, Redskin superstar safety Sean Taylor died a day after being shot in a break-in at his home in Miami.

The passing of one of the NFL’s best players marked the biggest D.C. sports tragedy since Maryland basketball star Len Bias died of cocaine intoxication in 1986 and the biggest Redskin tragedy since Vince Lombardi’s death in 1970.
